Löser 50/30-gatan barns, äldres och funktionshindrades krav på säkerhet och tillgänglighet?: fallstudie Regementsgatan i Malmö ett år efter implementering av fysiska åtgärder
2003 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
A part of the Swedish Vision Zero is to develop safe pedestrian crossings and to demonstrate suitable traffic calming measures in demo projects. One demo project is Regementsgatan in Malmö, Sweden. In a previous study the short-term effects of implementation of traffic calming has been studied. In this report the effect one year after implementation is studied, i.e. still not the long-term effect but rather a mid-term evaluation. The study has been conducted at three intersections at Regementsgatan and in three control crossings, two with zebra crossings (same design as on Regementsgatan) and one without marked crossings. The intersection without marked crossings is used as a migration-of behaviour site, i.e. to study if the road users' behaviour has changed there too. The emphasis of the study is on traffic safety and mobility for pedestrians and cyclists, especially children and elderly. The Swedish law concerning car drivers giving way to pedestrians was strengthened on May 1, 2000. The behaviours of pedestrians, cyclists and car drivers has been studied in four different time periods, before reconstruction and change of Code, after change of Code but before reconstruction, shortly after reconstruction (i.e. five months after change of Code), and now a year after reconstruction (i.e. a year and five months after change of Code). Places were video filmed from various angles to capture the different road-users' behaviour. The vehicle speeds were measured with radar.
